In the Californian set had some hints of greatness, but not what was expected, and in 2019 he was hired as one of the best reinforcements in America.

In the mexican club the injuries were turning off that light of talent that Dos Santos showed. Although he played more than 1,600 minutes, he only scored three goals in 33 games.
